VICTOR LAVALLE COMES TO COMICS WITH DESTROYER

BOOM! Studios has been launching new comics from people new to the medium for some time now.  This May sees another such example with Destroyer as horror novelist Victor LaValle makes is funny book debut.  Illustrated by Dietrich Smith, the series looks to put a modern day spin on the Frankenstein story.  Here’s the write-up from the publisher:

When Dr. Jo Baker loses her son as the tragic result of an encounter with the police, she turns to science to find true justice for the death of her only child… by resurrecting him. Embracing her heritage as the last living heir of the Frankenstein family, Baker will soon come face-to-face with her family’s original monster, one whose quest to eliminate the scourge of humanity from the planet has been reawakened by recent events. But as the two must decide if they’re friend or foe, Dr. Baker will be forced to question if this battle for vengeance makes her the family’s true monster.

“The country is tearing itself apart. Hell, the whole world is tearing itself apart. All of us seem to be teetering somewhere between annihilation and hope,” said LaValle. “Destroyer is the story of a woman, a mad scientist, facing the same dilemma. And her choice might mean the death of every human being on the planet. I'm so excited to be telling this story, and at this exact moment in time. It will be a hell of a lot fun and thought-provoking, too.”

Smith added, “Working alongside well-established writer Victor LaValle is a joy in itself and illustrating this legendary monster of lore is a bonus I can’t explain. More importantly, the issues this series addresses will no doubt enthrall and entertain readers, hopefully bringing about introspection in them as well.”

Destroyer is set to debut in May 2017.
